Reverse Curve Tunnel
Posted February 25, 2018, by Norm Hutchins (normhutchins [at] msn [dot] comI)

I am proud of this tunnel,as I was General Superindant in charge of the tunnel drive and concreting of the tunnel for the JF Shea Co INC .It certainly had its challenges.As the Dolomites rock is some of the hardest in America
